Warner is offering “Wolfen” as part of the Warner Archive Collection

Buy on Amazon

Warner Brothers Home Entertainment quietly added Michael Wadleigh’s horror film Wolfen to the Warner Archive Collection, bringing the film to high definition for the first time in June.

A real-estate tycoon, his coke-binging wife and a slum wino have something grisly in common: They’re the latest victims in a series of random murders. A veteran NYPD detective soon suspects the killings may be supernatural and deliberate – ages-old beings of cunning intelligence and incredible power defending their turf from the encroachments of humankind. Using a Steadicam camera and Louma crane to simulate the predators’ perspectives. Director Michael Wadleigh achieves a remarkable blend of New York City mystery and menace not captured on film before. With deft performances by Albert Finney, Gregory Hines, Diane Venora and Edward James Olmos, Wolfen is a full-fanged, full-throttle horror ride.

No bonus materials have been announced for the release, and considering that the DVD was without supplements also, it is safe to assume that the Blu-Ray version will come with only the film’s Theatrical Trailer.

“Wolfen” makes its showing in high definition on June 2 for $19.98 on Blu-Ray Disc.
